MANAGEMENT REPORT – Reporting were managers Bob & Vickie Davis. The front gate has been open until 7 p.m. & will probably go back to 6 p.m. There has been a problem with unit keys. It's requested we come to office, get the keys they have to your unit, check to be sure they work. Often during the summer, a need arises for management to unlock your unit. However, it is your choice if you do or do not wish them to have a set of your keys. Website for park is riovalleyestates.com
